Context History (more history, all contexts)

Start Date Context Status Description
2024-07-12 hst_1168.pmap operational The ACS WFC bias, dark, CTE dark, and sink files were generated following the ACS WFC anneal on July 8, 2024, and should be used to calibrate ACS WFC observations taken between June 14, 2024 and July 8, 2024.
2024-07-12 hst_1167.pmap archived Delivering an initial rmap for new COS HVDSTAB reference file type.
2024-07-09 hst_1166.pmap archived Update to the COS NUV TDSTAB reference file for all modes, obtained using Python analysis scripts analyze_files.py, analysize_data.ipynb. A wavelength dependence was introduced to all supported modes and slopes were updated to model data up to August 2023. The file was tested by comparing all TDS observations since May 2009 to a reference model and by comparing NUV TA observations since September 2013 to remove sensitivity loss over time. The reference file has a USEAFTER date of 2009 May 11, the start of COS NUV operations.
2024-07-03 hst_1165.pmap archived These WFC3 UVIS superdarks will affect all UVIS data taken from May 14, 2024 to June 14, 2024. Currently, the automated calibration pipeline and CRDS have only WFC3 UVIS drk and dkc reference files with USEAFTER dates of up to May 11, 2024. The automated pipeline should now use these reference files to perform dark subtraction on any UVIS datasets obtained between the dates above, as they represent the most accurate picture of dark current and hot pixels for this time period. These WFC3 UVIS drk and dkc files were generated using dark exposures from HST Cycle 31 CAL program 17348. More information regarding the method used to create the UVIS dark calibration reference files can be found in WFC3 ISR 2016-08. Additionally, the header of each reference file contains a detailed history section outlining the process, and provides a list of data used to create each file.
